Well, I hope you’ve all had a deadly NAIDOC!


Our Service Delivery team came together to attend the first of 2 workshops on Culturally Informed Trauma Integrated Healing Approaches. We spent 3 days together where we explored trauma and how it is experienced by ourselves, our families, our communities and considered what that looks like for us working in an Aboriginal Organisation. 

While challenging for all of us at times, I was filled with hope and genuine appreciation for everyone who was there, for your willingness to participate openly and with integrity to who you are as an individual, and how your experiences inform the ways in which you support our people through you’re work here with Thirrili. I’m grateful for the shared language we are building with regards to how we relate with trauma, our own and then naturally with others.

Here is a snapshot of just some of the deadly work that has been happening across Australia in June

  • Now fully staffed the team across QLD and NT highlighted that meeting with the whole Service Delivery team was awesome in helping them to feel part of the team, and more settled. New South Wales, Victoria, Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania 
  • Wilcannia, Community Capacity Building activity, engaging the community and bring feel good event to community. FREE haircuts for community members (58); School Disco, partnership with Wilcannia Central School.
  • Shepparton had another successful meeting and community are now wanting to get actions/movement in identifying and addressing items.
